Randy Michael was born! A BIG BOY at almost 11lbs!!!!

Postby Erika1202 » Jul 17, 2013 11:25 am

Hi ladies, writing this 7 weeks late, but my HG baby was born on May 29th and he was a BIG BOY! 10lbs and 14oz and 23inches long (yes, almost 11lbs!) and I had him vaginally too! No one had any idea, we thought maybe he would be 9.5lbs at the most!
My labor was pretty hard and long, (i pushed for about 2.5 hours ) and I still have recovery to do and healing, but I take over the HG any day. My midwife was shocked at his weight too!
He is very healthy so far (but quite the appetite!), no complications, and came out no problem believe it or not.
The pediatrician in the hospital said that he could of been taking all of my nutrients could of been a reason of why I was so sick and why he was so big but no one really knows what causes big babies or HG (which we already know!).
Also, I gained close to 60lbs the last few months of my pregnancy after not gaining any the first 4 months, but within the 2 weeks after giving birth was back to my pre-pregnancy weight and right now I am even below my pre-pregnancy weight which MIGHT mean all of the weight I gained could of been water, but I have yet to ask my midwife if that is a possibility of why I lost my baby weight so fast.
I just wanted to let you all know that there is relief at the end of the tunnel, and that big babies are possible from HG! so who really knew?
Has anyone else here had a crazy big baby too?
